Join us for the photography safari of a lifetime through the vast coniferous boreal forest, rugged mountains, and a network of rivers, lakes and coast line of southern Yukon and Alaska. We will start in Whitehorse, travelling along the southern reaches of Yukon and into Alaska. Get ready for photographing mountain landscapes, from-twilight-to-zenith colors, and roaming wildlife. 

We will focus on planning for unique landscapes, mountain ranges and wildlife photographs. Learning how to use proper composition and natural objects to help create impactful “keeper” photos. Techniques such as long exposures, HDR and light painting will all be part of our daily activities.  When we are out photographing we will discuss camera settings, holding your camera properly, how to set up a tripod in different terrain, how to care for your gear and what it means to think outside of the box. Our goal is to take your photography to the next level and help you achieve your photography goals.

We will visit the magnificent Kluane National Park, which has been declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1979. We will stop at Sheep Mountain in hopes to spot the local Dall Sheeps on their traditional territory. Several waterfalls and stunning landscape photography opportunities exist on this trip as well. We will also have the opportunity to photograph a variety of sea birds including Bald Eagles, Wildlife is everywhere on this journey – and not just marine wildlife. We regularly see Bears and Mountains Goats high on the mountain cliffs. When we return to the hotel each night, we will then open up our laptops and discuss editing techniques to achieve sharper images, how to manipulate color, create better composition from cropping and introduce you to some techniques we use to create more appealing images.
